EU introduces control procedure for conflict minerals

"supply chains"

EU introduces a control procedure for conflict minerals

The European Commission has recently published a so-called secondary regulation which defines how it will assess and approve systems for controlling conflict minerals. The systems can be used by metal importers from the EU to show that their products do not come from mines or smelters that violate human rights.

The provisions concern the supply chains for the import of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold.
